A small number of open fascists showed up at the Richmond Gun rally in a failed attempt to peddle their poisonous politics there. Jovi Valle showed up along with several Proud Boys and they were confronted by anti-Fascist activists. Jovi Valle is a known Holocaust denier, made remarks denying the Holocaust, and earned an article in rawstory.com about both his Holocaust denial and the heckling he earned for it. The antifa activists were on the scene both patrolling for Nazis (who event organizers attempted to order to stay away), and also because many anti-Fascists themselves do NOT want the government disarming the general public. The current US government has an all but open fascist in the White House, the GOP largely an overtly fascist party, and hate crimes are the highest they have been in decades. Many consider disarming the public in the face of this sort of governmental behavior to be a suicidal risk.
